Our objective is to select the best suppliers from all over the world. The decisive factors in this process are the quality of cooperation, specific performance and strategic importance. Both large-scale and small-scale suppliers are eligible.
Prior to the selection decision, we identify all purchasing possibilities across the world, taking account of requirements and the procurement market. The next stages are supplier evaluation, supplier classification and supplier development. After successful completion of this process, the supplier has qualified for closer and longer-term cooperation.
